Kasim Hussain, 18, was part of a group of people who gatecrashed a party in Clifford Road at around 11.45pm on Saturday, 23 November.
One of the invited guests bumped into the group and was attacked by the suspects who repeatedly punched him. Hussain then produced a knife and stabbed him multiple times.
Emergency services were called to the scene and the teenager was taken to hospital with a collapsed lung and serious injuries to his chest.
Police launched an extensive investigation into the incident which resulted in Hussain handing himself in four days later to a police station.
On Friday, 3 July he was sentenced to five years imprisonment for section 18 grievous bodily harm and possession of an offensive weapon.
He was jailed for a further 12 months for robbery following an unrelated incident.
“This was a violent assault that was unprovoked and resulted in a young man requiring critical medical treatment,” said Detective Constable Mohammad Belal Khan.
“It is fortunate that the injuries sustained were not more severe. A massive thank you must be said to all the first responders involved as well as all the vulnerable victim and witnesses.”
